The drive through Day-O Espresso and Smoothies in downtown Sonora will donate 100 percent of its sales from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday to the proposed Big Dreams Playground in Tuolumne.

Owner Tony Benites III said the downtown Sonora hut usually donates its profits every Sunday to various charities.

"We are a community company, and we try to give back as much as we can," Benites said. "I think it's a great thing. I don't have kids with disabilities like this, but it's something I understand. Sometimes you gotta reach out and help people."

The Big Dreams Foundation, started by Soulsbyville's Sarah Garcia, is raising money to build a playground that will be wheelchair accessible and have a flat surface that children and adults with disabilities will have an easy time walking on. The park will be built next to the Tuolumne Veterans Memorial Hall.
